About This Class

As i'm fine tuning as i go and before i start rapidly putting out the courses with the new framework i thought i would share with you (as i know later on someone will ask!) the process i currently work to when i make a new course.

i find these quicker courses work great this way and while i can use this for bigger courses on different platforms with some tweaking this really only works for short courses because i tend to record in one take instead of recording clip by clip (which i was doing before but it never really suited me)

so then, in this quick course i'll through. .

  • the process/steps i follow to make the content
  • using trello to put together my notes before recording
  • using apple keynote to make the slides
  • recording everything with screenflow
  • editing the edited content from imovie
  • using canva to make templates for cover thumbnails

maybe this will help you find your 'routine' and a better way to be putting together your courses. i know that time is always the main factor of why something does not get done so i try and give you an overview how i break the task into pieces that i can pick up at the various different stages.

hope you like it! :)
